In Topic: 504 Plan

06 August 2012 - 11:11 AM

One other thing. As far as I know, there is no formal referral process for a 504. It is a federal accommodation plan for general education students. It is completely unrelated to special education, which requires many formal issues such as a psych eval to see if there is a learning disability. Be sure you don't get the issues confused as the departments and the processes are completely different.

Have they gotten sick frequently and miss a lot if school. Accommodations need to be reasonable to the student and illness. I think anything relating to food, cross contamination is important and perhaps a health class should be done to teach kids about Celiac, so they can both understand it and that they cannot catch it. It is best for teachers and cafeteria workers to know about this too. It is also important that the teacher leave instructions for a sub, where there to be a party or holiday celebration. I'm not sure about the need for an extra set of books, unless they miss a lot of school. I think every parent would like that for their kids. Just have the 504 focused on each child, the illness and try to anticipate issues. The 504 can always be amended. You don't want it to become a stigma so your kids will potentially be sources of bullying. Good luck.

In Topic: Xanthan Gum Original Source

From my research xanthan gum gum can come from soy, corn or seaweed. It most often comes from soy but not listed as an ingredient. The only way to find out is by calling the manufacturer for the info. I have a soy issue and found this out the hard way. Be very diligent in checking out all ingredients and don't assume they are gluten or soy free if it is hidden in ingredients. Good luck and read all labels carefully!

In Topic: Stool Color And Many More Questions

Self diagnosis is not safe or healthy. You could be doing your body more harm than good.
Yes all those things will change stool color, but you need an MD and maybe a nutritionist to help you do what's right.

In Topic: Exposure To Something

I have a new problem with soy and I have learned that it depends if it is the soy protein that is used. My understanding is that is where the allergens come from. I don't know why this soy garbage is permeating the gluten-free food and so many others. Processed soy uses all kinds of chemicals if my sources were accurate. I try to avoid it all together. If it bothers you and makes you feel worse eliminate it.
